So here I am, posing nicely in front of the foxgloves while Gail and I waited for her friends J and F to join us at the start point of our walk on Saturday.
As always, we were early, so I had time to examine the sign telling us all about the footpath route.
All very interesting I must say. Gail took one more photo and then our friends arrived.
And now I hate to disappoint anyone who was expecting more pictures of this historic route - Bronze Age sites, Roman camps etc.
I regret to report that Gail, on seeing these good friends for the first time in months, completely forgot about her camera. In fact she almost forgot about me too, and the three humans nattered on and on and on.
In between sniffing the greenery I caught snatches of the conversation. Have you noticed how our humans have all become experts in virology, epidemiology, post-pandemic economics and the efficacy of face masks? Then there was the state of the oil industry in Aberdeen (dire), the 26 episodes, each 1.5 hours, of a Korean TV series (also dire) that J+F's daughter-in-law Jihye had insisted they watch through lockdown. And, oh so much else to talk about, apparently...
Odd times still.
PS The good news is that Gail tells me we'll be able to go across to our Torridon cottage again next week, for the first time since March. YIPPEE!!!!
